MAXIMUMOPERATINGSAVINGSIn many regions, the total cost of meeting refrigeration load by natural gas is substantially less than the cost of using electricity. The variable speed operation of the TecoDrive natural gas engine used on the Tecofrost optimizes energy use by closely following the load profile. This variable speed capability provides additional benefits of longer intervals between required maintenance on both the engine and compressor. This annual operating savings is significant and yields a rapid payback. Utility, state, and federal incentives available in many areas.
